Activity Centres in Wales

Specialist Activity Centres in Wales

Sea, lakes, rivers, mountains and hills; Wales has some stunning natural landscapes that are simply perfect places for children to experience outdoor adventure education. Hardly surprising, therefore, that there are so many activity centres to be found here.

Whether you want to base yourself somewhere like the Pembrokeshire coast to take part in some water based activities like kayaking or windsurfing, the Brecon Beacons for orienteering and team building activities, or climb into the Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd or Conwy to do some hill walking or mountain biking; your activity school trip to Wales is going to be energetic and fun!

Every Welsh activity centre we work with holds a range of outdoor adventure based accreditation, meaning that you can be sure that your school group will be in the hands of experienced and professional staff. View each centre's full listing for a checklist of national awards and features designed to make your job of planning a visit easier.

The activity centres we work with offer a mix of single day activities and multi day residential stays, and the majority of centres are more than happy to adapt their activity programmes to meet your goals. So fun-filled end of term reward trips, start of term bonding, or curriculum based outdoor learning, we can help find a safe and exciting Welsh adventure for your group.
